2500 Viking Ships Sail to Wal-Mart

In a true medieval/modern oddity, 2500 Viking ships are arriving at Wal-Mart stores across the U.S. as part of a promotion of the film How to Train Your Dragon.

The film, due for release on March 26, is being promoted with a large Viking-themed display in Wal-Mart stores as well as with a life-sized Viking ship replica parked at Times Square in New York City.
